European citizens now have multiple digital rights over their personal details, including the right to be asked to provide consent for the storage of personal details, the right to be asked to provide consent to be contacted, the right to see the personal information stored, the right to know who this information is shared with (consent is also required for sharing), the right to be contacted should a significant data breach occur and the right to be forgotten, including having all personal details permanently removed from a database. All of these changes must be prospectively acknowledged by the user and cannot be presumed to have occurred. The onus rests with the database holders (i.e. Critical Care Reviews) to be able to demonstrate consent has been obtained. Fines for non-compliance with this can reach €20 million. As a result, we have updated our privacy policy accordingly........
